AM Trace is a portable oxygen and moisture analyser designed to measure the internal atmosphere in the build chamber of an Additive Manufacturing Machine. AM Trace has a measurement range of 1ppm to 25% oxygen. This sensor is unaffected by hydrocarbons or volatile atmospheres and is specifically designed for low Oxygen measurement (<100 PPM) on Additive Manufacturing Machines.

The AM Trace has a fast response time from 20.9% to low PPM Oxygen. AM Trace also incorporates a moisture sensor which allows measurement of moisture in the range of -60°C to +60°C. AM Trace utilises touchscreen technology and front facing inputs / outputs to integrate into any system with ease.

  • Lightweight portable case with handle
  • Accurately monitors oxygen and moisture levels in the AM build chamber
  • User-friendly touch-screen interface includes status notifications
  • Electronic flow sensor
  • RS-485 serial communications
  • USB / Flash drive input
  • Relay output for Alarm / sounder beacon configuration
  • In built sample pump allows you to extract the gas sample from the process.
